Admissions and Nursery Admissions

September 2019 Nursery & Reception Tour Dates


Please contact the school office on 01923 855 864 if you would like a tour.






All admissions to Shenley Primary School have to be completed through Hertfordshire County Council.

The following County admission rules apply for Primary schools which have more applications than places available.


Shenley Primary School admits children up to their annual admission limit. Where there is over subscription priority will be given to:

  • Children in public care.
  • Children for whom it can be demonstrated that they have a particular medical or social need to go to the school.
    A panel of officers from County will determine whether the evidence provided is sufficiently compelling to meet the requirements for this rule.
  • Children who have a brother or sister on the roll of the school, or linked school, at the time of application for admission, unless the sibling is in the final year of the school or linked school, whichever provides for the older children.
  • Children for whom the school is the nearest Community or Voluntary Controlled School.
  • Children who live nearest to the school.

Responsibility for admissions currently lies with the Education Authority. Information will be sent from County Hall to your home address during the first term of the school year before your child is due in to school. Parents considering sending their child to our school are welcome to visit by appointment.

About our Nursery


The Nursery at Shenley Primary School is an enticing and vibrant learning environment which enables children to reach their full potential. We endeavour to create a warm and nurturing atmosphere which allows children to flourish and develop their independence. Our experienced and qualified staff are committed to the enhancement of children's learning and development.


The Nursery is part of our 'Foundation Stage Unit' (FSU) which gives children in Nursery and Reception a wider variety of learning opportunities by allowing them to spend their child initiated learning time in any of the Foundation Stage classrooms or the outside classroom. In our most recent OFSTED Inspection the Foundation Stage Unit was highly praised and judged to be 'Good'.


'A wide range of learning opportunities are planned, both indoors and outside, which are well supported by staff. This enables children to become confident and enthusiastic learners.' (OFSTED 27th June 2017)


'Children are well looked after. Staff give children’s welfare a high priority and make sure that the statutory safeguarding requirements are met. Relationships between parents and staff are positive. Parents feel welcome and included and they confirm that they receive useful information about how their children are getting on.'(OFSTED 27th June 2017)


We currently offer both morning and afternoon sessions as well as the option for children to stay all day. We accept applications from parents with both 15 and 30 hours funding, as well as offering the option to pay for additional sessions for children only attending 15 hours.
